    I found this book at BN and bought it based on the summary for my 8 year old He could not put the book down He would rather forego bedtime than stop reading He even told me he has recommended this book to his friends, and for a child who speaks about nothing but soccer and Pokemon, this says a lot about this book The 5 stars are from him He insisted that I have to spread the word about this book.

    When Benji meets Louis, a man who can not only read people s minds but who collects and shares memories with others, he is intrigued, but when he hits upon the idea of removing some of his parents memories in order to stop them from fighting he becomes just a little obsessed with the idea Benji brings his twin sister, Kelly, into the plan, but things begin to go downhill fast, because Louis is not the only memory thief at the fair, and, it turns out, there s little honor among memory thieves Soo [...]

    I think I will read any book that Bryce Moore publishes They are clean, inventive, and entertaining This one surprised me on another level, dealing with the very real and sobering situation of parents who are angry at each other and plan to divorce It was handled very respectfully and not superficially at all, I don t know how you would even begin to do that.The story focuses on a young boy who gains the ability to experience other people s memories, and even steal them What kind of consequences [...]

    Cross posted from my blog where there s information on where I got my copy and everything.While it s not going to be in my top ten or anything, this is a solid little book that I didn t really have any problem reading It s not over the top wow amazing, but it s perfectly serviceable, and an enjoyable read I definitely think there are things it could have done better, and I ll get into those things, but it wasn t bad by any means, and my feelings in general are satisfied Let s jump into the rest [...]

    My name is Benji, and I didn t mean to become a memory thief My parents were fighting again at the fair, I was being chased by bullies, and I ducked into Louie s tent to get away Louie is a memory thief, and he already knew what I was thinking and even put one of his memories right into my mind He warned me to stay away from a lady with tattoos, but I didn t listen She showed up, my twin sister forgot who I was, and then Louie died right in front of me Before he died, Louie put all of his memori [...]

    Awesome ideas and themes in this book And the author sounds like a great guy My only critique of the book was a big one the narrative voice The kid stressed me out with all his high anxiety and indecisiveness There were times he went back and forth so much it grew frustrating to read Though the storyline justified his high anxiety, I would ve loved to have had the author somehow incorporate a witty sidekick to break up all the tension and anxiety, rather than the reader being stuck in this stres [...]

    A timid boy has to step up to save his family when a wicked magician steals their memories I liked how Benji had to work at courage especially once he loses the support of his assertive sister I didn t like how often the plot turned on luck Benji worked hard to untie himself, but the final confrontation relied on chance And the cascade of final revelations unbalanced things a bit But the theme of memory and identity gives meat to the adventure and I bet kids would enjoy this.Set in Maine.

  11. Jamie

    That was a fun, quick read Super quick for me, but middle school was a long time ago I really liked the description as Inside Out meets a modern Something Wicked This Way Comes I completely understood Benji s feelings about his family having gone through a divorce as a child myself though my experience was somewhat less horrific This is exactly the kind of power I would ve imagined and wanted back then Heck, I finished the book and I still kind of want to, in spite of the obvious message.

  12. Susan

    I enjoyed this fast paced MG novel about the importance of memory The characters aren t anything special they re not very fleshed out or that interesting but the book s premise is intriguing, the plot moves along quickly, and, although it features telling than showing, the writing is better than expected Overall, it offers an enjoyable and thought provoking story.

    What happens if you go to the fair and find a dude that can give and take memories And what if that dude has an apprentice that s gone bad and wants to steal everyone s memories Including your family s What then

  14. Natalie

    This book was amazing I never put the book down the entire time I read it with the exception of sleeping because it was just so good Everything was well thought out and it was interesting to see.

  15. Rachel

    I was drawn to this book by its premise than its genre, as I generally don t read many middle grade fantasies It takes a mature idea how memories shape our identity and gives it a clever hypothetical scenario readers of all ages can relate to Who doesn t have memories they would like to forget or replace with something better What would be the cost if we could Imagery I loved in the book the nostalgic excitement of a county fair in a small town, memory libraries as actual rooms that differ from [...]

    I was provided a review copy by Adaptive Studios through Edelweiss, and since my pre teens and I enjoy reading MG fiction together, I gladly agreed to share my thoughts.First of all, this book does not shy away from describing the brutal impact of divorce on young children The arguments and yelling that the main character clearly overhears from his parents are shared as an everyday occurrence in their household, including the parents discussion on divorce proceedings The main character Ben and h [...]

  17. Jessica

    Well now, this was fun I ll spare you my standard spiel on how important I think MG fiction is, and just tell you straight out that this book is going to appeal to a lot of young readers It s intriguing, fast paced, and actually rings true to real life despite its premise What if you could share other people s life experiences Would you take that opportunity What if you could actually take memories away from people Is that okay, if they won t remember and it might improve their lives So we come [...]

    This book isn t your average middle grade page turner This book deals with some serious topics divorce and definitely had a Something Wicked This Way Comes creepiness about it It is about a boy who meets a man at a fair who can erase, add or replace memories The boy sees this as a solution to his current family crisis his parents impending divorce He decides to erase the bad memories his parents have for each other so that maybe they will remember why they liked each other in the first place Of [...]

    My Review I accepted this book for review thinking it would be a quick easy read that would entertain me on a rainy day, and it did exactly that, only the day wasnt rainy it was just extremely over cast, but it was cold, so i could accept that as a happy medium This novel had such a thought out way of explaining a core part of human life in a way that will have it s middle grade readers taking away a deep and personal message from this.The Memory Thief I m not too familiar with reading books wit [...]

    It s always a little odd to review a book when you know the author, but it can also be easy when you really like the book I was than pleasantly surprised at Moore s second book, The Memory Thief This is a children s book for kids ages 8 12, but definitely has some dark stuff in here Really GOOD dark stuff Memories being stolen and sold on the black market, leaving some people feeling bereft instead of happy People that had too many memories stolen ended up with black, creepy eyes, and seemed l [...]
